Jeeves in Bloom 
adapted by Margaret Raether

Directed by: Mike White



The peaceful English countryside may never be the same after Bertie Wooster and his unflappable valet, Jeeves, pay a visit. What starts as a plan to pair tongue-tied, amphibian-loving Augustus Fink-Nottle and fanciful, poetry-loving Madeline Basset quickly goes awry. Soon, Bertie is fending off Madeline's amorous advances, reluctantly participating in an attempted burglary, and fleeing attacks from a homicidal French chef. With the stakes this high, the solution must lie with the one and only Jeeves!

Bertie Wilberforce Wooster: Male, 30-49 - an affluent bachelor with a tendency to get himself into tricky situations. Simply has not grown up and has little understanding of the world around him. Even though he's self centered he's very likeable and harmless.

Jeeves: 40-49 - Bertie's unflappable valet, level headed. Always thinking 5 steps ahead. Long suffering but discreet and flawlessly mannered.

Agustus "Gussie" Fink-Nottle: Male, 30-49 - a teetotaler bachelor pal of Bertie's; anxious and lacks tact especially when under pressure. He wears horn-rimmed spectacles, and is a noted newt fancier.

Dahlia Travers: Female, 50-69 - Bertie's aunt, a fearless soul. She alone among Bertie's gaggle of aunts appears rather fond of Bertie, despite referring to him as "idiot nephew." She publishes "Milday's Boudoir," a women's newspaper.

Thomas Portarlington Travers: Male, 50-79 - Dahlia's husband. Tends to become apoplectic on the subject of taxes, but is kept in tranquil spirits by the superb meals dished up by his chef, Anatole.
Madeline Basset: Female, 20-39 - a pretty girl, and the love interest. Her conversation tends to revolve around elves, gnomes, flowers, and small furry creatures.

Anatole: Male, 50-69 - French accent. Highly skilled, highly temperamental French chef employed by Dahlia Travers. Often referred to as " God's gift to the gastric juices," he speaks limited English and threatens violence at the least hint of culinary criticism.
